Services: Prosthodontics: Crowns and Bridges

A dental bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more natural missing teeth, thereby bridging the space between two teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth.
